The award recognises the person or group whose clinical or scientific work has made a substantial difference to the equine veterinary world. Professor Clegg was announced as this year’s recipient at the AHT Equestrian Awards gala dinner held in London.
Professor Clegg said: “I am absolutely delighted and honoured to receive the award. It is recognition for the efforts of a large number of highly talented individuals that I have been extremely fortunate to work with over the last 10 years.
“Research is very much a team endeavour and this award recognises the efforts of numerous PhD students, research assistants, and academic and veterinary colleagues who have contributed to the research which I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in.”
